A screenshot from the game Shank.

Shank is a modern revival of the traditional brawler. The game has a combo system often described as the 2D version of the classic game God of War or Devil May Cry. The main character carries three main weapons: a chainsaw, dual pistols, and dual knives. The weapons are mapped to a face button which allows players to seamlessly switch weapons. Shank also contains many basic elements of platforming games, which include the players jumping and scaling buildings, and using knives to climb. Marianne Krawczyk, who worked on the God of War Franchise as a writer, has been confirmed as working on the story for the game.

Release Date & PriceEdit

The game is set to release on August 24, 2010 on the PlayStation Network and August 25, 2010 on Xbox Live. The game will be $14.99 or 1200 Microsoft Points respectively.
